Had to take more drugs and lay down midday, as the pain got rather intense.
Got up shortly before I got a call from our CTO (my grandboss). I wasn't completely clear whether people have been complaining about /my/ stuff in particular and he's following up with me, or if people have been complaining about everything and he's following up with everybody. But apparently things I designed and wrote /18 months ago/ don't work the way people want them to work today, and that's my fault, I guess? Whatever. We're going to have a meeting some time next week to enumerate the codebases I'm responsible for, who is going to start learning them to be my backup, and just how many of them I can /actually/ maintain simultaneously while still fielding tickets in other systems.
edit: Why does it always seem to happen that I have a bad work day that also makes my workplace look bad /right/ as I'm trying to hard-sell someone on coming to work wherever I am?
